I thought I would write a post this time. I have had several guest bloggers lately but haven't really said anything myself so I thought I would weigh in on a few things.
Lately, there have been quite a few interesting posts about the use of social media. From everything to use in higher education to no longer needing business cards.
While I am an obvious supporter of social media these articles made me stop and think. I think social media tools are great and useful but the questions these articles and the use of social media in general have raised for me, and I know for many others, is does the use of social media make us more impersonal and anti-social in in-person settings? Also, do you think kids/students today are more or less engaged as a result of social media use?
I know these are not easy questions to answer but I thought I would put them out there and see what you think about them.
I will post what I think in another blog in the next week or so but I don't want my opinions to sway yours. I want to see what others really feel about this topic. What have your interactions with students and colleagues made you think in regards to these questions?
I look forward to reading your comments!
This blog is all about social media. I hope to offer tips, tricks, advice and more on using social media within international education and international travel.
